Russell got his shellfish license so one morning we drove around, scouting out some of the beds open for digging. The map in the town guide is really, really bad. We had to compare it to a map of Bourne that I brought with us. Pretty sure he has a good idea of where he'll go digging, if the weather ever gets warm. These first pics are from various locations.
We finished up at Scraggy Neck so I could beach comb at low tide. It was beautiful out...wind a bit nippy but not freezing. Looking out towards Cleveland Ledge Light.
The same view, frozen solid, from January 2018.
I had some fairly decent luck with my beach glass endeavors.
Another shot from January when it was completely silent. No sound of the water at all.
And back to normal with the awesome sound of the waves.
I am so grateful to my hubby for putting up with my painstaking search for treasure, even though he was really cold and hungry. We went out for pizza after we left!
Right after I took that I looked at the sand and couldn't believe my eyes. A beach glass bead. I was literally dancing around. This is one of the beach glass holy grail items and was a huge score. Really one of the finds of a lifetime.
Looked threatening but it never did rain.
Once last pic of Cleveland Light before we left.
My treasures for the day. Russell picked up a bunch of sparkly rocks he thought I'd like. He knows me so well!
Another shot of the bead.
I hope we get some spring weather cause we're both eager to keep getting out to the coast. It smells so good and the sounds of the water is very soothing.
